Kansas City chef Heaven Lee is one tough cookie. Not only can she slice, dice, and julienne the finest food in town, she's got nerves of steel to match her culinary skills. From deadly barbeques to bodies in dough, one things for sure: Heaven Lee can outsmart and outcook them all.

Heaven Lee is tackling the world of soul food and jazz . When a big jazz festival comes to town, the chief organizer is murdered. Of course Heaven Lee was around for the murder and gets fingered as a suspect, along with many other Kansas City residents who also seemed to dislike her. But the festival must go on, so Heaven and the rest of her crew have to cook and get the music started all while avoiding becoming the killer's next target.
